Ms. Roura grew up in the great city of Chicago, Illinois. After graduating from Eastern Illinois University in Charleston, Illinois in 1995, Ms. Roura spent time as a swim coach and lifeguard before joining the Peace Corps in 1997. From 1997 to 1999, she devoted her time in the Peace Corps to teaching agroforestry to the native farmers in San Luis Jilotepeque, Jalapa, Guatemala. Her career in Graduate Medical Education (GME) began in 2001 as a Transitional Year Residency Coordinator at Resurrection Medical Center in Chicago and progressed with taking on the coordinator role at Providence St. Peter Family Medicine in Olympia, Washington in 2008. Ms. Roura was presented with the opportunity to diversify her GME experience in 2016 to help start up a rural training program in Chehalis, Washington.
